Challenge: Free Study 2013-02 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: East Honolulu
Date: Feb 16, 2013
Date Uploaded: Feb 17, 2013

I shot my Elvis song lyrics entry here a few months back and knew I had to return to reshoot and have a figure on the rocks.

It was pretty windy this day which helped with the cloud movement. There was also quite a bit of wave activity. You can't tell but there's someone in the water surfing right off of the point.

Aloha everyone for taking the time to vote and comment.

I usually do not give 10's out. It's really hard to have the perfect shot. Well you did though!
The whole image and added soul, make this shot fantastic.
Glad you took the blue!
Keep Smilin...

Gorgeous and the processing is excellent. One of my top picks.

Good job at exposure control for what looks like a very long exposure. And for standing so still for so long.

Stunning clarity and sharp, vivid colors. Electric.

It's hard to tell this one apart from a number of DPC'ers. I have my guesses though. Beautiful (DPC) eye candy through masterful photography and camera skills to PP wizardry. Top Ten. 8

A beautiful scenic - colors, light, and clarity are excellent and that silky water is gorgeous. The lone figure takes it up a notch. 9 Voted earlier.

The colours, long exposure, comp and scene selection are impressive. Nice to see an additional element added. Yeah, that person really adds interest for me. I love the depth in this creation.
Excellent...
